  • The Rooftops of Lisbon - Line and Wash Sketch

    The Rooftops of Lisbon

    £3.00 - £150.00

    A myriad of rooftops in Portugal's capital city, Lisbon, captured in a loose line and wash style.

    I started out with a very loose, almost abstract, watercolour wash, before establishing the general layout of the roofs. In this way, the scene can be built up organically, hopefully in such a way that neither the ink nor the watercolour are dominant - when it works out well, it becomes a sort of 'fusion' of the two mediums.

    What I really love about painting a scene like this is that it is a journey, with unexpected surprises along the way; I also love the way that, despite the chaotic nature of the subject, each element is visually connected to, and supported by, those elements next to it.
